Re: Mach2 mount - answers to questions

"Thru-mount cabling - the Mach2 has internal cabling for the RA/Dec axis motors and encoders, but that is NOT the same thing as thru-mount cabling. For the Mach1 it was easy for the user to run cabling from their cameras, dew heaters and other stuff thru both axes and out the back. The shaft, bearing and encoder system on the Mach2 does not allow similar easy user-run cabling.

That being the case, you should provide some way of firmly attaching cables to the outside of the mount -- screw holes for plastic loops, holed flanges to loop Velcro ties -- something! -- something beyond whatever random protuberances the mount happens to have.  Do you?
